Please note that the right of withdrawal expires in the case of a contract for the supply of digital content by download when the entrepreneur has started execut-ing the contract with the consumer's consent and has confirmed his knowledge that his consent means that he loses his right of withdrawal when he starts exe-cuting the contract.
